The Library page is used to build and organize your collection of evergreen content that can be posted over-and-over on a continual basis.
The Discover page recommends content that you can add to your library.
This evergreen content can then be posted to your social media accounts at scheduled times. You can manage these schedules on the Schedule page.
In the event that you need to write single-use, one-time posts, you can use the post composer on the Queue page.
The Queue page also shows all scheduled one-off posts (whether they are scheduled for tomorrow, next week, or next year), and, additionally, shows how your scheduled evergreen content will be posted over the next 7 days. Only the next seven days of evergreen content are projected on the Queue page, but rest assured that your evergreen content will be posted every week, forever, as scheduled.
That’s the meat of it. Congrats! You are on your way to growing your social media presence using Jarvis.
Here are some tips for unearthing more gems using Jarvis’ Discover feature:
Each combination of library category and social media account can be thought of as an independent pile. When Jarvis is scheduled to post from a library category to a social media account, it takes the post off the top of that specific pile, posts it, and then puts it back on the bottom of the pile. The next time Jarvis pulls from that category, it will get a different post, and (in theory) no post from a pile will ever be posted twice to that specific social media account until everything in that pile has been posted once.
Every minute, Jarvis checks if you have set up any schedules to post during that minute. If you have set up a schedule to post to one of your linked accounts from one of your library categories at that time, then Jarvis will take the post off the top of the relevant pile, post it to Facebook or Twitter, and then put it back on the bottom.
Keep in mind that each combination of social media account and library category is an independent pile. This means that scheduling a single category to post to both your Facebook and your Twitter will result in the same content being posted to both.
Facebook and Twitter are fickle, and often very picky! Facebook and Twitter will often reject posts that it deems to be duplicates of, or too similar to, posts that were recently posted. Sometimes they will accept a post as long as a single character in the post body is different, while other times they will reject the post because it contains the same image or links to the same URL. Don’t stress -- Jarvis will try again later anyway!
Twitter will reject posts that exceed roughly 140 characters. We will warn you when you schedule posts for Twitter that exceed this limitation. Note: When picking posts off the top of a "pile", Jarvis will skip posts that exceed 140 characters if attempting to post to Twitter.
If we recieve any errors when trying to post evergreen content, we will display these errors on the Library page, alongside the relevant post.
This is most likely occurring because some of your posts are being skipped. See the answer to that question for more information.
Sure! There is nothing about Facebook, Twitter, or Jarvis, which prevent you from using another tool at the same time. Note that Jarvis can’t communicate with other scheduling tools, so if you schedule a post using both Buffer and Jarvis, for example, it will likely be posted twice (unless rejected by Facebook/Twitter due to being a duplicate).
Many users use Jarvis alongside other scheduling tools as they become more comfortable with Jarvis, prior to fully migrating.
